On the pressure in preparing for the draft:

"There’s pressure put on you to do well in these workouts. It’s fun, though. I love the game and love competing, and you put a lot of work in these last few months to see how good you are. You just go into those workouts, show them what you’ve got, and hopefully, come June 25, everything works out like you planned."

What changed your mind after you initially entered the draft without an agent?

"There wasn’t any changing of my mind, I just didn’t have an agent at that point. My coaches, and everyone close to me, knew that I was going to go. It’s just at that point, I hadn’t decided on an agent."

Talking about going through this process with high school teammate Wayne Ellington:

"Wayne’s my best friend. I played with him in high school and we’ve been friends up to this point. He’s been great. He had a great career at Carolina. It’s ironic how we came out of high school in the same year and are going on to the next level in the same year.

It’s cool to have him in this process by my side. It’s crazy for something like that to happen, even him coming to Episcopal and both of us being McDonald’s All-Americans.

I’m sure that hasn’t happened a lot. It’s just crazy how that’s happened. We’ve both got the same agent. I was talking to his dad about that a few weeks ago and how it’s worked out like that."
